Meet the Cast of Ys: Memories of Celceta

YsMemoriesOfCelceta

Next up in XSEED’s PS Vita lineup now that Valhalla Knights 3 has shipped, is the silver anniversary release of Ys: Memories of Celceta, the beautiful remake of Ys IV scheduled to ship later this holiday season.

With this being one of the rare Ys games to not have had a prior western release, it’s more important than ever to catch up with series star Adol Christin and some of the other companions the fiery red-haired hero will meet on his latest adventure. Just our luck, XSEED has provided us with character introductions for some of the key players in Adol’s epic quest to rediscover his identity within the Great Forest of Celceta. Those bios as well as accompanying artwork and screenshots are posted below for your reading and viewing enjoyment.

Adol Christin

The Ys series’ stalwart protagonist, Adol Christin is perhaps the most famous adventurer ever to have lived. Adol is a young man brimming with curiosity who constantly seeks the thrill of discovery and the wonders of new lands. This time around, however, the challenge is quite different – Adol is seeking to solve the mysteries of his own past.

Duren

Duren is an information dealer whom Adol encounters at a bar in Casnan. He claims to have met Adol before – though with no memory, Adol remains skeptical. An extremely kind-hearted man (though he’d never admit it), Duren can’t bring himself to walk away from someone in need, making him a perfect travel companion.

Karna

Karna is a cheerful, honest young girl who lives in the treetop village of Comodo. An extremely skilled huntress, she puts most of the other hunters in the village to shame with her accuracy and cunning talent. Her weapon of choice is the throwing knife, though she has an unfortunate habit of throwing first and asking questions later…

Ozma

A resident of the village of Selray, and the sole remaining member of the tribe which cares for the sacred beasts known as Spardas. Though young, Ozma acts as the village’s leader and has managed to uphold its peaceful ways for as long as he’s been in charge. Reliable, level-headed and dedicated, he is loved and respected by all of the village’s residents. While extremely stubborn and inflexible when it comes to the laws of his tribe, he is also extremely loyal to the people in his charge.

Calilica

Calilica is an energetic, curious young girl who is mature beyond her years in many regards. She harbors something of a complex about her age and youthful appearance, and is constantly seeking to be recognized as an adult by those around her. She looks up to Leeza as an older sister, and has been with her since they were both children. As such, she will hold back at nothing if she can be of assistance to her.
